Multi-award winning West End and Broadway smash-hit ‘Girl From The North Country’ is coming to The Lowry next year.
Double Olivier award-winning Girl From The North Country is an uplifting and universal story about family and love which reimagines the songs of Bob Dylan.
Set in 1934, in the heartland on America, a group of wayward souls cross paths in a time-weathered guesthouse. As they search for a future, and hide from the past, they find themselves facing unspoken truths about the present.
The production will embark on its first UK Tour following an opening 5-week season at the 3Olympia Theatre Dublin from 25 June 2022. It will tour to The Lowry from Monday 19 September to Saturday 24 September 2022.
The play’s acclaimed writer and director, Conor McPherson, said: “Collaborating with Bob Dylan has been a unique privilege for me. We have had an amazing journey opening on Broadway and in the West End but I feel particularly excited and moved to finally bring this work to my home town of Dublin and on tour around the UK.”
The Broadway cast recording of the production has been nominated for a 2022 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.
Casting will be announced soon.
Bob Dylan is one of our culture’s most influential and ground-breaking artists, he has released more than 50 albums and written over 600 songs.
Speaking on his songs being used in the show, Bob Dylan said: “To be associated with Conor is one of the highlights of my professional life.
“It goes without saying the man is a genius for putting this thing together and I’m thrilled to be a part of the experience. My songs couldn’t be in better hands.”
